The lady was ahead of her time by about 40 years. Also the execution of the portrait looks too good for mid to late 15th C. That said it doesn't look very familiar to me.

It's a copy of a lost original by Holbein depicting Elizabeth Cheney (Lady Vaux) https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Cheney-1739 She is the grand-daughter of Elizabeth Saye's brother John ... although according to Wikitree she has two brothers called John born the same year with different families :(

Those brothers do represent the same person, it's in hand. Should I move the portrait to Lady Vaux or just remove it? There's nothing about copyright on it. Thanks for info.
